Well this is my third time brewing, my first time was a california commons, but i like left it out in the middle of summer, so i think it got screwed up... it was prolly(this is a way easier way of typing probably, for you old timers) 80 degrees where it was sitting. It tasted off, but kind of had a weird belgian chimay style taste. I wasn't thrilled thought, thinking i would have a anchor steam type of beer. So i then brewed a pale ale, and its in a party pig but i forgot to prime it, haha i was trying to figure out the damn party pig. So i may prime that tonight, hopefully it will carbonate(its been there from the secondary for about a week, maybe more).
So my third beer, all these beers are from kits, is a trad. british ipa with target in the boil and i plan on dry hopping with fuggles. Anyways in the boil, they didnt give me a muslin bag, but they gave me some kind of tablet to put in there.. . i looked it up it was some kind of irish moss that helped clear the beer. I didnt strain the beer when i put it in the primary, and i think i shouldve... just the instructions didn't explicitly say to. Now im in the secondary, and i'm wondering if my beer is ruined. I'm hoping i'll be alright, i used an auto siphon to siphon my primary to the secondary.
Sorry for so many words...
